When, in the industrial field, there is the need to move large sheets or long wooden panels, in general we use several suction cups, which can also be outside the sheets in the case of products of different shapes and surfaces.
Vuototecnica has therefore designed a device that is able to select the suction cups actually involved in the grip, a particular probe valve.
Considering the point of origin and the length of the sheet/plate to be taken, the suction cups are activated only if they are entirety inside the sheet or the panel with an intelligent use of vacuum.
The special probe valve (code 190230), on the outside diameter of the suction cup lip, activates vacuum only when it is completely on the plate.
In this way it is possible, among other things, to avoid the use of vacuum solenoid valves, able to select or deselect the suction cups – certainly effective but more complex and expensive.
Vuototecnica valves are made of anodized aluminum and last over time.

The quality of a product depends on the guarantees that the brand is able to give over time to customers, on the effectiveness of the solutions.
For this reason Vuototecnica is keen to mark each product, including suction cups, with the logo and the identification code. Vuototecnica makes a promise to the customer through this identification.
It is a mark of recognizability that allows customers to immediately identify potential false or imitation, which are not Vuototecnica manufacturing.
If you were standing in front of a fake, the quality would not be the same. It would be like purchasing a fake Rolex: it might work but, before our eyes, day after day, we would see the difference in features and functionality, and above all the lifetime is not guaranteed.
Always check the logo and identification code are carried on each product!
And if you have any doubts please contact us.

To improve efficiency and increase revenues, Italian manufacturing companies invest in technologies, but what is most important, now evident, is the ability to extend technological investments to the entire product life cycle – from concept to after-sales services – to finally enrich the end customer’s experience.
An Accenture survey of 90 Italian companies (40 large and 50 small and medium-sized companies) in 22 sectors shows this very well.
The strategic priorities of investments in digital technologies are to develop innovative products and services (64%), to adopt technologies profitably (58%), to enter new markets (58%), to increase customer involvement (53%).
Italian manufacturing companies are indeed well positioned in the world market thanks to the high quality of the products and this makes them 4.0 companies.
For these reasons too, Vuototecnica knows that investing in technology is the first step to make its customers happy and to always grow.

At the basis of an energetically efficient production process and highest performances there is an optimized manipulation solution.
Vuototecnica knows it well, so any application that creates for its customers always considers the efficiency.
And efficiency means energy savings, with no waste.
The engineering of Vuototecnica products considers above all the quality of materials that allows them a longer lifetime, therefore, for many applications there is no need to change ejectors and vacuum cups frequently. All pieces are resistant over time and always effective.
This is the case for example of Vuototecnica holders with shut-off valves – we have already discussed their benefits here on the blog – and of vacuum regulators, able to maintain the degree of vacuum in a constant manner, or of pneumatic PA/PS pumps that allow you to save up to 40% of compressed air and of AVG energy-saving vacuum generators.
Flipping through the catalogue is really hard not to come across products that do not pay attention to sustainability.
We invite you to do so and to contact Vuototecnica designers to find the right solution for you!

Have you ever wondered how the cans from which you drink your favorite drinks are being processed?
Or are you a manufacturer and are looking for a method to improve the production and packaging phases?
The shape of the cans certainly does not help the handling operations, nor during the initial production stages, neither during filling and packing in pallets.
For this particular problem, Vuototecnica developed a suction cup ideal for taking flat, smooth or slightly rough objects with cylindrical or curved shape, such as cans.
The lip shape allows a firm grip, eliminates oscillations (so as to avoid load losses) and reduces the volume of air contained in it, allowing faster grip and release.
The suction cup can be fitted without the use of adhesives, on an anodized aluminum support provided with a threaded central hole to allow an easy fastening to the automatism. Everything in a very simple way.
If you need a spare, you can simply request a new suction cup, in the desired compound.
To find out more, contact Vuototecnica designers who follow you considering which product is the best for your application.
